Well, it's about time. Really great to see this coming out. Wonder what special features will be on the disc. I heard that Ken Russell and Mark Kermode had recorded an audio commentary. Kermode's excellent 'Hell On Earth' documentary would be a great addition too.

I heard that Ken Russell and Mark Kermode had recorded an audio commentary.
lets hope they are seperate audio commentarys and not together, that Kermode annoys me.

When me and Paul met William Friedkin he was there, i got Friedkin to sign my japanese laserdisc then Kermode went to sign it aswell! I stopped him, what the fuck would i want him signing my disc for! fair enough if it was his Exorcist book but not my fucking laser!

Will this "Unrated" version be complete because i thought most of that extra stuff was destroyed.

Here's info from shocktillyoudrop.com:

"Hoo-boy. Warner Home Video announced it has set a May 20th street date for Ken Russell's infamous The Devils. Purists will take no pleasure in learning there are no extras. They should, however, note Warner is presenting an uncut version (at 111 minutes in length). Released in 1971, the film stars Oliver Reed, Vanessa Redgrave, Gemma Jones and Dudley Sutton."

I'll still buy this release, but they could have indluded the documentary. surely it wouldn't have cost them that much to licence...

Apparently all this fuss about a DVD releases has just been a hoax...

Lucas puts a decent case across for the release being a hoax.

Hoax or not, I really do hope this is put out on DVD soon. It's beyond time. Ollie Reed's finest moment, for sure.

The way it questions the mentality of religion, for good or bad, is perceptive and daring. It takes in mass hsyteria, religious fanaticism and the blinkered thinking of clerics - what's not to like? It's a masterpiece.

At least its given a heads-up to Warner the amount of interest in this film. With the Warner Brothers anniversary release program this year I'm still hopeful.

They must be a ware of this title's potential, there's been petitions and enquiries galore in the past.

Really hope this isn't a hoax.

From what I hear, Warner's won't release it. They have way too many religious zealots working for them nowadays.

That says it all. Let's hope the Democrats get into power at the next US election; they're usually a lot more lenient on censorship aren't as prone to scaremongering.
